Updated with quotes for March 2015:

Classic:
. . .nothing so liberalizes a man and expands the kindly instincts that nature put in him as travel and contact with many kinds of people.
— Mark Twain, letter dated May 18, 1867.

 

Direct:
To migrate, especially alone, to an alien environment full of people with strange ways, and to be forced to integrate oneself — that is the kind of move that sets the mind to working inventively. — First Sociology, 1982, p. 453.

Garden moment for March:

Crocuses in a boulevard along the Niagara Parkway near the brink of the Horseshoe Falls. In a normal year, they come into bloom around the vernal equinox. This year, they will likely be a few weeks late.
